“Being in the forest can restore our mood.
Give us back our energy & vitality.
Refresh & rejuvenate us.
We know this deep in our bones.”
– Dr. Qing Li, Tokyo’s Nippon Medical School + world’s foremost expert in forest medicine

Upcoming Special Events
Mindful Movement Workshop, Forest Therapy & Brunch
Saturday, February 5, 10am-12pm
We’re thrilled to team up with mindful movement facilitator Whitney Pyles for this unique indoors experience at the DAAC in Grand Rapids, MI! IYE founder Katie will share an exploration of forest therapy and nature connection through meditation, awakening our senses, and bringing the outside indoors, and then we’ll move into an exploration of mindful movement and joyful dance with Whitney. These workshops are a wonderful way to start your day off light: cultivating a feeling of freedom and connection to yourself, community, and this month, nature.
This workshop is $35 & includes a healthy & delicious lunch from Gaia House Cafe, along with time to eat together as a community.
Space is limited, so sign up soon to save your spot!
